If I really enjoy reading a hub I will rate it up, then I will tell the person whose hub it is in the comment that I leave that I have rated their hub up. I do this because otherwise I don't know how they can tell that they have been rated up. Maybe there is a heading in my account that I am missing maybe you have to be rated up first before it will show. But if you can't see it and no one coming to you page can see it what is the point?
The number of thumbs up and down used to be part of the stats page, until so many hub authors became obsessed about it and then those stats were removed.
Yep, by removing those columns from the stats page it meant having fewer threads per week of people complaining because they got one thumbs down.Can you imagine how many extra threads a day there would be if those stats were still available?
Yes, people posting their entire hub asking why did this get a thumbs down?
I can see that this would be a problem.
The mind boggles. lol

I was just wondering, if you read a well written hub but it was something controversial that had a different opinion than you had, would you rate it thumbs down because of that or would you rate it on the hub itself (...

I won’t vote thumbs down, I feel the person had worked hard on that hub, and just because I don’t care for it, doesn’t mean it’s not a quality hub. On the ones I like I will vote a thumbs up and...

I just voted my own hub down because I was trying to use those arrows to scroll with! They look like scrolling arrows, not voting arrows! This is not good.
